London: Arnold Schwarzenegger was eager to replace his estranged wife Maria Shriver with a young lover after his marriage hit the rocks, his new tell-all autobiography revealed.

The 65-year-old actor also refused to attend therapy sessions with Shriver, 56, when she found out that he had slept with their housekeeper Mildred Baena, the Daily Star reported.

According to Newsweek writer Laurence Leamer, the ‘Terminator’ actor told a friend: “I think things will work out OK with Maria, but if they don’t, I’m getting me a 20-year-old honey.”

The autobiography ‘Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story’ will be published on October 1.
